Blooloop and Christie present a live discussion: “How can far-UVC light help attractions battle COVID-19?” on 3 February. New far-UVC light disinfection technology could be a game changer for the attractions business.

Join us on 3 February, 3:30pm GMT to find out how far-UVC light disinfection could help visitor attractions to reopen, and to future proof venues.

The pandemic has resulted in visitor attractions closing around the world. With vaccines now coming online the end of lockdown seems in sight. But is a vaccine a silver bullet? We are already seeing new mutations of the COVID-19 virus, even before the first vaccine has been rolled out. And what about future threats?

In order to regain consumer confidence in entering location based entertainment venues, effective disinfection will play a key role. Far-UVC light disinfection is a new technology that can be instrumental in reopening visitor attractions now. It also provides a solution capable of addressing new viruses and “superbugs” in the future.

Art + FinTech 2.0 will bring together more than 40 global art market leaders and tech entrepreneurs in a series of keynote addresses, conversations and panel discussions about the online art trade, new-media art, virtual reality, blockchain technology and sustainability. Art + FinTech 2.0 aims to uncover, examine and debate the new age of digital disruption and innovation in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic. The summit will be attended by collectors, museum and art fair directors, curators, gallerists, artists, fintech leaders and blockchain technology experts. Among the event highlights will be an exclusive session with one of the most influential figures in the blockchain industry, Joseph Lubin. He is a co-founder of the Ethereum platform, and the founder of ConsenSys, a decentralized blockchain production studio. He will discuss the potential uses of blockchain in the art market. Lubin will be joined by tech entrepreneurs from OpenSea, SuperRare, dada.art, Nifty Gateway, Cryptovoxels, Mintbase and NonFungible.com. Millennial collectors, including Astrid Hill, Maria Baibakova and Eugenio Re Rebaudengo, will discuss innovative developments in the art world and new ways of working, while artist Paul McCarthy will talk about his multimedia artistic practice and experiments with virtual reality. They will be joined by leading museum directors and curators, including Sabine Himmelsbach, Alfred Weidinger and Christiane Paul, gallerists such as Johann König, and collectors including Adam Lindemann, Anita Zabludowicz, Masha and Jens Faurschou and Dominique and Sylvain Levy. Art + FinTech 2.0 runs from June 1st to 29th, with sessions every Monday and on selected Fridays. After registration, delegates will be able to participate in the live webinars and watch videos of the sessions on the Art + Fintech 2.0 Big Marker platform. Themes Online art trade The online art market has been growing steadily — to almost $5bn in 2018, according to the 2019 Hiscox Online Art Trade Report. The trend has been accelerated by the global pandemic, with art fairs and galleries rapidly developing online viewing rooms. Art + Fintech 2.0 will examine the latest developments in the digitization and virtualization of the art market. Speakers will discuss the potential of augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) for arts businesses. They will also consider how these technologies can ensure future success and contribute to creating a more sustainable art ecosystem. New-media art New-media art has been a rapidly developing field, embracing extended reality (XR), VR and AR as well as internet-based work and generative art. With many museums and galleries closed, the lockdown has encouraged greater audience exploration and sharing of screen-based works of art. Nevertheless, the perception remains that new-media art is difficult to display, collect and maintain. The webinar sessions will consider the best ways of exhibiting, collecting, conserving and building new-media art collections. The speakers will also discuss how to build audiences for innovative digital art forms. Blockchain technology Distributed ledger technology — or blockchain — has been widely discussed in the art market since 2018, particularly its potential to establish ownership, provenance and authenticity, smooth out transactions and create secure “smart contracts”. Art + Fintech 2.0 will discuss recent developments, including initiatives such as Art Identification Standard, which aims to make it easier to trace, identify and protect works of art. Joseph Lubin, one of the co-founders of Ethereum, will speak about the possibility of blockchain creating a new, more transparent art economy. Other speakers will discuss the evolution of blockchain collectibles, also known as non-fungible tokens, to create unique, irreproducible works of art, and the rise of crypto art and blockchain-powered virtual reality realms. Meanwhile, Christiane Paul from the Whitney Museum of American art will explain how the museum is experimenting with blockchain to encourage new models of art patronage. Quotes “UNFOLD Art XChange was conceived as an innovative art business conference and summit platform. It aims to become one of the largest multicultural art exchanges, bringing together diverse voices across local, regional and international art landscapes. In light of the current global situation, with nearly a third of the globe in enforced isolation and the art world at a standstill, UNFOLD Art XChange has decided to examine the need to speed up the global transition towards a digital art economy. At Art + FinTech 2.0, we will explore how the coronavirus pandemic is pushing the art world into an era of digitization and online. I hope this webinar series will offer a new and stimulating virtual experience, bringing together thought-provoking leaders in the art and tech worlds to share best practice, help us to innovate and come out stronger when the pandemic ends.” Rachel Rekkab, Founder of UNFOLD Art Xchange “We are facing a great moment in the history of art and the art market. Nobody would have thought six months ago that digitization could be adopted so quickly across the whole art industry. Art + Fintech 2.0 is offering a unique platform to guide us through a broad variety of current technological developments which will significantly change the market and the way we experience art in the near future.” Georg Bak, Art Advisor & Curator, Crypto + Blockchain Art, Curatorial Advisor, Art + FinTech 2.0 Speakers Maria Baibakova Founder & Director, Baibakov Art Projects Masha and Jens Faurschou Co-founders, Khora Contemporary Astrid Hill President & Founder, Monticule Art Joel Kremer Partner, Moyasa Media, Director, The Kremer Collection Dominique and Sylvain Levy Co-Founders, dslcollection Adam Lindemann Founder, Venus Over Manhattan Eugenio Re Rebaudengo Founder, ARTUNER Anne and Michael Spalter Co-founders, The Anne + Michael Spalter Digital Art Collection Anita Zabludowicz Founder, Zabludowicz Collection Georgina Adam Journalist & Author Nanne Dekking Founder & CEO, Artory, Chairman, TEFAF Sabine Himmelsbach Director, HeK (House of Electronics Arts, Basel) Johann König Founder, König Galerie Paul McCarthy Artist Jennifer and Kevin McCoy Multimedia Artists Sophie Neuendorf Vice-president, Strategic Partnerships, Artnet Christiane Paul Adjunct Curator of New-Media Arts, Whitney Museum of American Art Serena Tabacchi Founder & Director Museum of Contemporary Digital Art Alfred Weidinger New Scientific Director, Upper Austrian State Museum Alex Atallah Co-founder & CTO, OpenSea Jason Bailey Founder, Artnome Bernadine Bröcker Co-founder & CEO, Vastari Duncan and Griffin Cock Foster Co-founders, Nifty Gateway John Crain Co-founder & CEO SuperRare Pari Ehsan Founder & Creative Director, Pari Dust Annika Erikson Founder & CEO, Articheck Devin Finzer Co-founder & CEO OpenSea Nate Geier CEO, Mintbase Niko Kipouros Founder, 4ARTechnologies Joseph Lubin Co-founder Ethereum, Founder ConsenSys Marianne Magnin Managing Director, Arteïa, Chair, Art Identification Standard Judy Mam Co-Founder, dada.art Ben Nolan Founder, Cryptovoxels Anders Petterson Founder & Managing Director, ArtTactic Adriano Picinati di Torcello Director, Global Art & Finance Coordinator, Deloitte, Robert Read Head of Art & Private Clients, Hiscox Magnus Resch Founder, Magnus App Christina Steinbrecher-Pfandt Co-Founder, Blockchain.Art Aaron Wright Co-founder, OpenLaw Gauthier Zuppinger Co-founder & COO NonFungible.com Full speaker list: unfoldbrics.art/art-fintech-2-0/speakers The New Age of Digitization and Innovation sessions Monday June 1 • Art & technology: digitization and virtualization of the art market • Globalization & democratization of the art market: the growth of the online art trade • The millennial generation: how are young collectors driving the online art marketplace?
